So my husband and I are thinking of turning our laundry room into a bathroom/laundry room, which means replacing our old washer/dryer with possibly a stack of compact apartment-sized front loaders.
Is this going to be a good idea? My concerns:
1) Are we going to miss the load size? Does anyone have apartment-sized laundry? How does it work with a family?
2) Detergent. Do you need special detergent? Right now, I actually use the soap flakes-washing soda-borax homemade mix, but I heard that doesn't work in front loaders? Please advise.
3) Diapers. Do cloth diapers wash as well since these machines use less water?
